Tide Pods and laundry pods are so popular.

Procter & Gamble Recalls 8.2 Million Defective Bags of Laundry Detergent

I love doing laundry, something you need to know about me and I have a very small laundry space, so Tide Pods, Gain Flings, and all the other laundry pods work great for me. I don't have the liquid detergent to measure out, etc. It's a win, win for us.

Unfortunately, if you stocked up on some of these products lately, you should pitch them. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission says that P&G is recalling 8.2 million bags of Tide Pods, Gain Flings, Ace Pods and Ariel Pods sold in flexible film bags. According to the recall, the issue isn’t with the pods themselves but the bags they’re sold in. It's not about the actual pods themselves but the bag they come in. Please don't allow kids or animals to go near these bags they come in.
